Vacation Bible School 2014

This past week we had Vacation Bible School at church every evening 6-8PM.

The theme was "Let's Build an Ark"

Hence the construction tape and animal masks.

Each evening we sang songs, had a 30 minute class where we learned some stories from the Bible, then had snack…

played outside,

and then did a craft. A very full two hours (and a very busy week)!

…never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” Genesis 9:11

A rainbow is a sign of God’s promise never to destroy the earth with a flood again (Genesis 9:12-17). The caveat: with a flood. Hahhaha;)

On the last night the kids sang the songs they learned to the parents:

“Once when the world was very, very bad

God made it rain, rain, rain, rain rain” *

*excerpt from one of the world’s most catchy VBS songs. Haha

We have a tradition at our VBS where there is a water balloon fight on the last night.

There were about seven big bins full of water balloons!

Quite congruent with the flood-theme!

    I love the serendipity in the image of baby blowing bubbles where she has captured The Spy in one of her bubbles. Lovely stuff :). Always good to see a pastor willing to get down on his knees to kid level :). Baby, apart from her seeming unwillingness to get wet, appears to be violating the no splash zone. Good girl…sometimes you just have to be willing to burst a few balloons to make a point ;)
